The Most influential women in American politics.
A new poll shows that the five most influential women (women with an average of 250,000 Twitter followers) have a combined net worth of $11.4 billion, according to Forbes.
This makes Michelle Obama the richest woman in American history, according the new study, which also finds that the median woman has $6,200 in assets.
The list also includes Oprah Winfrey, whose net worth is $20.7 billion, and former Presidents George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and Barack Obama.
These figures include $3.7 trillion in assets held by the wealthiest individuals, the study notes.
While the average American family has $2,500 in assets, the wealth of the wealthiest women has grown by an astounding 1,300 percent since 2000.
It is estimated that Michelle Obama, the most influential woman in the country, owns $1.3 billion in assets in total.
It’s worth noting that Michelle is not alone among the most powerful women in the world, but that her wealth is greater than the average woman’s net worth in America.
When Forbes asked the five women to name their top five, Michelle ended up with six.
In addition to being a multi-millionaire, the former first lady also happens to be one of the richest women in America, Forbes notes.
The Huffington Post has identified the five wealthiest women in all 50 states and Washington, D.C., according to the Pew Research Center.
In order of wealth, Michelle is the second richest woman, after Oprah, and the third richest woman behind Oprah.
According to the report, Michelle has an estimated net worth estimated at $22.7 million.
That’s a significant increase from the $8.9 million estimated for her in 2015.
As for the median household, the Huffington Post found that the average household in the United States has $24,500 worth of assets, which is about $1,500 higher than the median in 2016.
The median household in California, meanwhile, has an adjusted net worth for 2016 of $31,900.
The average household on the East Coast has $33,400 in assets and the average on the West Coast has a $53,200 net worth.
It should be noted that the Forbes study only looked at women.
Forbes did not include a gender breakdown of the top five most powerful individuals.
